Album Review

The Black Crowes' debut album, Shake Your Money Maker, may borrow heavily from the bluesy hard rock grooves of the Rolling Stones and Faces (plus a bit of classic soul), but the band gets away with it due to sharp songwriting and an ear for strong riffs and chorus melodies, not to mention the gritty, muscular rhythm guitar of Rich Robinson and brother Chris' appropriate vocal swagger. Unlike their later records, the Crowes don't really stretch out and jam that much on Money Maker, but that helps distill their virtues into a handful of memorable singles ("Jealous Again," "She Talks to Angels," a cover of Otis Redding's "Hard to Handle"), and most of the album tracks maintain an equally high standard. Shake Your Money Maker may not be stunningly original, but it doesn't need to be; it's the most concise demonstration of the fact that the Black Crowes are a great, classic rock & roll band.

Really Awesome album

this album has the perfect mix of rock and blues. it is awesome.

Rock 'n Roll Redemption

In a world dominated musically by the only type of music that has no musical characteristics (Hip Hop/Rap), it is a rare and heart-stopping thing to find a band that plays good ol' classic rock and roll. Thanks to the Black Crowes, I know there is hope for the world. Even though they came at a point in time where rock & roll wasn't cool, they had the songwriting abilities and hooks to re-popularize it. I hope that a band comes that proves the whole generation wrong and shows everyone what real music is. I got a Rolling Stone magazine in the mail today. Jay-Z was bigger than ever on the cover. What, Dr. Hook couldn't get on the cover of the Rolling Stone but Jay-Z can?

One of the All Time Classics!

Not one bad track on here. I would rank this with The Stones "Exile on Main Street" and "Let it Bleed" as one of the most solid albums of all time. It's timeless.

At the time of their 1990 debut, the kind of rock & roll the Black Crowes specialized in was sorely out of style. Only Guns N' Roses came close to approximating a vintage Stones-style raunch, but they were too angry and jagged to pull it off completely. The Black Crowes, on the other hand, replicated that Stonesy swagger and Faces boogie perfectly. Vocalist Chris Robinson appropriated the sound and style of vintage Rod Stewart, while brother Rich Robinson fused Keith Richards' lean guitar attack...
